to our colleague from indiana. >> thank you ms. black. i come from a district that is a long history of manufacturing. i tell you i couldn't be more proud of the workers that we have in northeast indiana. i believe that manufacturing is what makes this country and has made this country to be the great country that we live in today. but, you know, in spite of the federal government's intrusion and the complicated tax code, manufacturing is still making a comeback under very difficult circumstances. in my district we build rvs, medical devices. we build trucks, steel, boats. we manufacture a lot of things in northeast indiana. what i hear from manufacturers back home is instead of worrying about what the rest of the world is doing we should be worrying about what we are doing here. we need an energy policy. we need to reform our tax code, simplify our tax code. those things right there would make a huge, huge difference in helping our manufacturers be successful and more productive right here at home rather than trying to get those companies from other countries back into the united st
bipartisan hearings with congressman brayly in iowa and also in indiana, and they've been very helpful in giving us a new direction, new ideas on how we can assist our veterans that are coming home. because we do -- i know this committee recognizes that, that with the wars in iraq and afghanistan winding we are going to have a large influx of veterans coming back home. and i think what's very important and all of us would agree with this, that we have jobs here for our veterans. one of the things i would quickly point out that i think that we've had the discussion here about the national guard. i think this is the national guard would be -- should be utilized more and it would be an excellent place to give our veterans the opportunity to continue to serve our country, but as well as living and working in their communities. there are no reductions in this budget for veterans programs. in fact, the republican budget increases spending for veterans, fully funding the president's request for veterans health care. you know, we could, instead of creating another program here, mr. chairman, w

is not necessary. i would like to yield one minute to the gentleman from indiana, mr. young. >> i thank my colleague from indiana. first, i do want to commend my colleague across the aisle for her attention to this issue. i think it's important. i would like to note, however, that when you look at unemployment trends for veterans, according to the census bureau, actually nonveterans have a higher unemployment rate, but it's that short-term unemployment when a veteran -- our younger veterans, it tends to be, return from deployment. during that period they do sometimes have a tiflt time transitioning, finding employment. and i don't believe that this is the right answer. i think $50,000 per job to be created under this program is probably not the best approach. i think there are other things we can do. we can work on improving programs to match veterans to the appropriate job. we can assist them with job search skills. i think our organized labor in their helmets to hard hats program is great. i don't believe they receive any federal funds for that. but i'd like to encourage them in their ef

to detroit and you go to ohio and you go to pennsylvania and indiana and illinois, where a good share of the auto industry resides, whole communities have been negatively impacted just by the downturn. it would have been significantly worse. president bush said 1 million jobs and $150 billion in tax revenue would have been foregone by the state and federal governments had it been allowed to fail. there is the infrastructure. the industrial infrastructure of the nation would have been severely damaged. i don't care how we got there. the question is did it work? chrysler is alive. we're alive. we are not just alive. we are prospering. around the globe and in this country. since the bankruptcy, we hired 1,700 employees in the united states alone. we invested $10 million. i know against a $1 trillion deficit sounds like peanuts. it's not. the ability to build new cars. we are focused on what is the evolution of the industry. we cannot afford to focus on the near term. what is it like in 2030? why are we spending money on the alternates? hybrids or hydrogen fuel cells. if i mentioned names

'll yield some time to the gentleman from indiana. >> thank you, gentleman from wisconsin. and i agree with the comments that are made by mr.ruble. and i don't agree that there's no one in congress who wants see a child go hungry. i didn't know we were poor until the government told us we were poor. i think the worst thing we can do right now is to continue to lull people into government handouts, let's focus on the economy, let's make sure that companies can provide jobs, let's not make liorompanies out there that want to create jobs. they want to -- they would be creating jobs if they knew that there was certainty. snap has grown from $18 billion in 2001 to over $80 billion today. what that reflects is obviously the recession, but also to me, it reflects an ever growing federal government that continues to want to take care of people from cradle to grave and we have to get back to the principals that made this country great where people work and take advantage of opportunity and i yield back. >> two minutes for the gentleman from kansas. >> thank you, reid, i appreciate the opportuni

indiana, tennessee and illinois. we always get tornadoes. we always get very severe storms with hail, et cetera. there are a group of scammers that will go from door-to-door and from state to state following the storms. we call them storm chasers. sometimes we have a different group of scammers we call travelers that just come seasonally depending upon what the issues are. in the case of the storm chasers what will happen is they will follow a disaster and they will go door-to-door and say things like, i just repaired your neighbor's roof, and i have some materials left over. be happy to give you a discount on your repair for your house because i have one more day i'm going to be here. if you can decide right now -- so there's always this high pressure sales, the concern for you're going to make a deal we did it for your neighbor. so they're trying to give a number of areas of comfort with respect to, well, i've already about been in your neighborhood, et cetera. and of course we've even seen people get up on the roofs and make damage so that they can ostensibly repair it. a lot of times
